RE: Anti-Catholic Laws
Yup. The Puritans were not good people. I'm very grateful that the Anglicans, Methodists, Catholics, Quakers, and good old fashioned Atheists and Deists mellowed out the melting pot before they got around to writing the constitution.

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.

anti-Catholic laws were now enforced rigorously, and thus during the last thirty years or so of the sixteenth century English Catholics. we just respect our religion..

in 1692 Maryland's famous Religious Toleration Act officially ended, and the Maryland Assembly established the so-called Church of England as the official State religion supported by tax levies. Restrictions were imposed on Catholics for public worship, and priests could be prosecuted for saying Mass. Although Catholics generally maintained their social status, they were denied the right to vote or otherwise participate in the government

George Calvert, First Lord Baltimore
George Calvert was the first person to dream of a colony in America where Catholics and Protestants could prosper together. He was born in Yorkshire, England and studied at Trinity College at Oxford.

In 1625, George announced to James I that he had become a Catholic, and so had to resign his job. But King James I liked George so much that he decided to give him another title. Sir George Calvert then became the First Baron of Baltimore, a town on the southern coast of Ireland.

Hi,

This is no doubt a truth behind everything and due to all this only we respect our religion and thus serves it properly by all the traditional values that are important.

Thanks!
